On the occasion of the 140th anniversary of the first edition of the book “The Adventures of Pinocchio, Story of a Puppet” by C. Collodi, the exhibition “Carissimo Pinocchio” curated by Giulio Iacchetti is held at the ADI Design Museum in Milan.

My project is PINOCCHIO TARLATO, a puppet with and without holes holes that recall the action of woodworms on wood. A Pinocchio imperfect, worm-eaten, who makes this imperfection his own peculiarities. A “speaking woodworm” appears inside the eye, a symbol of his conscience. A worm that gnaws in the head and reinterprets the figure of Collodi’s talking cricket.
